I am planning to visit Japan in late summer (for 1-2 weeks I am not sure yet). I am an Italian citizen with an Italian passport. I had a quick look online to see if I need to do anything regarding Visa.

To me it does not look like it, I should just be able to enter there for the period I have in mind. I don't know however if there's some covid restriction still applied and I need to do something in advance.

Any other info on the subject would be useful, I would be taking the flight from South Korea and coming back to South Korea (I don't know if this information is relevant but I am mentioning it anyway).

As stated here, as an Italian citizen, you don't need a visa to enter Japan. You will get a stamp on your passport and can stay in the country for tourism up to 90 days.

By using this site you can complete the entry procedure before landing, and go through the immigration control at the airport quickly.

As stated also there

Those entering Japan on or after April 29, 2023 are no longer required to present a valid vaccination certificate or pre-departure inspection certificate, and do not need to go through quarantine procedures via Visit Japan Web. Please note that you can continue to use Visit Japan Web after April 29, 2023, so please continue to use it for entry procedures as before.

    Whilst I'm not Italian, I entered Japan yesterday and can confirm there are currently no Covid-based requirements for entering.
